Dear Wisconsin Plaintiff Trial Lawyers,
President Wagner has asked me to initiate a Legacy Program for WAJ. What is it? A Legacy Program allows any member to provide an annual gift to WAJ or any of its programs after you pass. In other words, provide for support in your estate plan. On the assumption you want WAJ to continue to flourish into the future, this is one way to ensure that. Any amounts would be welcome. I intend to do that, and I hope you will consider it as well.
BobReady to start paying it forward?
Make a lasting impact by extending your support of the Wisconsin Civil Justice Education Foundation (WCJEF) and/or the Wisconsin Association for Justice (WAJ) Operations Fund with a legacy gift. Select an option that works for you and your family and let us know if you would like to put your donation to work today or gift us after your lifetime.Giving Options
The WCJEF/WAJ funds are dedicated to the advancement of the civil justice system and to promote its mission.
